The Cowichan Lawn Bowling Club wrapped up the 2016 season earlier this fall after a busy summer.

Among the highlights was the Mixed Pairs Tournament in late August, won by the duo of Tom Slemko and Maria Ridewood.

Other events included the closely contested Men’s Novice Championship, which was won by Ron Chudley; the Denny Baker Friendly Fours, won by Pat Unger, Betty Locke, Penny Irvine and Debby Davey; and the Two Bowl Six Pack, which attracts bowlers from across Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland, and was won this year by the CLBC team of Jim Brown, Jim Irvine and Ross Bulley.

In mid September, the club hosted the annual Cowichan-Parksville Exchange tournament, which the local contingent won.
